Peach varieties to pick include both regular orange color flesh and also WHITE PEACHES. We told y’all when you see white peaches on the “picking menu” that would be the last peach variety to get ripe, so that means peach season will end soon. Please bring clippers for eggplant, sunflowers, zinnias and some okra. Pickers must check in at market before 12:30pm and weigh & pay by our 1:00pm sharp closing time. Fry Scuppernong and Supreme Black Muscadine grapes are still ripening, but won’t be ready to begin picking ‘til maybe next week. These are not your Grandma’s wild Muscadines; these are 23-26% sugar, with edible skin.
